13 Things You Didn't Know About Jessica Korda

1. Jessica Korda was born on February 27th 1993 in Bradenton, Florida.

2. Korda is from a renowned sporting family: her father, Petr, won the 1998 Australian Open (tennis) and her mother, Regina, is also an ex-professional tennis player. Both represented Czechoslovakia. In fact she cites her parents as the biggest influence on her career.

7. At the time of writing Korda has had six victories on the LPGA. The first came in 2012 at the Women's Australian Open.

8. We believe Korda is currently going out with Johnny DelPrete who is a professional golfer and played on the KornFerry Tour for a while. He has also caddied for Korda in the past famously at the 2013 US Women's Open.

During the third round of that event, she and caddy Jason Gilroyed had several disagreements, and she fired him after shooting 5-over-par for the first nine holes. She then asked DelPrete to take up the bag for the rest of the round. He also caddied during the final round.

9. Korda's social media is regularly filled by a dog called Charlie DelPrete. It is a mini golden-doodle and it has its own Instagram page.

11. Both Korda and her sister, Nelly, are Whoop ambassadors and have been since 2018.

12. Her best round ever is a 60 which came at the 2021 Diamond Resorts Champion of Champions event.

13. In 2021 she and her sister became the first sisters to win back-to-back LPGA events since Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam achieved the feat in 2000.
